Grandma, thank you for everything over the years. You were the rock that never wavered. We all enjoyed the many holidays, the Easter egg hunts into our twenties(maybe even thirties), the Sunriver trips and many more things that will be recalled for years to come. We all love you and know you are in a better place. Love you Gram.
